Season 2, Episode 9: Katia Vlachos, How to Prepare for A Great Move


I am so excited to bring you a real gem of an episode this week. Katia Vlachos has been an expat her entire adult life and has moved in every capacity and situation you can imagine: on her own, with a partner, with a family, in a sponsored move, self move, etc. Through decades of expat experience, Katia wound up writing the book, A Great Move: Surviving and Thriving in Your Expat Assignment, and the book goes deep into the emotional and philosophical pieces of moving that so often get overlooked in favor of the nuts and bolts action-oriented items in most books.

Katia's advice is essential for first time expats, seasoned expats and repeats alike. She walks you through the critical preliminary decision making stages using 5 core principles as guideposts. You will not want to miss today's episode. Katia and I talked about the best and worst ages to move with children, she shared with me her philosophy on the importance of the preliminary decision stage of a move - regardless of whether that is a move away from, or back to one's "home", and she shared with me her theory on what home means and why it's so important for each of us to really know what we're talking about when we talk about home.

You can learn more about Katia at her website, and you can purchase her book here.

  5. I'm from Alaska here in the United State known as Susan and have been a victim of binary option and lot more, it all started after I lost my job at one of the chemical company in MA and I relocated with my families cause there was no need of staying back and my husband got little savings which we intend to start up something in Alaska but getting to Alaska we saw an advert online about binary option honestly I brought the idea to my husband and we both decide to invested the little with us so we could make enough profit and start-up something better but before we knew it we have our car sold out just to pay scammers and yet they never stop but always keep giving us hope and more money was been requested and this ruined my home.
    My husband got pissed off and left the state to MO and I couldn't handle it anymore cause I couldn't take it when I was pleading with the neighbor for food just to feed my kids.  I was so ashamed of myself and people always asked me what is going on and i was so scared to tell them the truth about what i'm going through, i really wanted to get through it cause have spent so much on it and gave all that i had into it but it seems not to be enough until one day a friend of mine who i knew long ago decide to take me out and I didn't want to acept at first anyway i went out with her and while i was smoking and drinking i didn't know when i told her everything and she screamed and tell me to hire wizardharry@programmer.net that she has been a victim of it as well, i quickly emailed Wizard Harry, my message that day was really crazy, I wrote Hey magic wizard, someone is dying and need her money back from fraudsters, please don't get mad at me, i need your help. he replied me and asked me of the wallet address i sent to and that of the name of the binary option, i gave all information as requested by him and he asked me to send him my own wallet address where the money should be reversed back to and i did. Honestly, it amazed me when I got 17 bitcoins in my wallet, I thought it wasn't real but I sold some of it and I got cash and I informed my husband about it he didn't believe it until I showed him. it was really a whole lot of experience and I urge everyone to contact wizard Harry as soon as possible, he made me know that if ever I need any job that requires hacking skills he is very capable and that include, hacking of account, GPS tracker, mobile spy, compute remote tricks, clearing of record, etc. email wizardharry@programmer.net or whatsapp +8078086168

  10. Sir Lionel Copeland happened to have the other side experience online and tell out what it feels like after dealing with it alone for a long time roughly about 5 to 6 months, he wanted to spy on his wife so he decided to hire some hacker over the internet and this made him loose $9000 within 32 hours so he then explained himself that at that point he was frustrated cause that was all his savings so he decided to look for who to help him get his $9000 back but he ended up losing more on the internet to scammers. It was a very faithful day according to him after having some drink with a cigarette on his finger while scrolling on his phone when he came across wizardhary(at)programmer(dot)net and his Whats App contact as well (+1-807-808-6168). Honestly he was scared cause he thought he might have another bad experience with wizard harry, he took him two days to write to wizard Harry, and when he finally got in touch with wizard harry, things turned around and all his funds were recovered back by wizard Harry. Today Lionel Copeland is living a good life and he is very thankful to Wizard Harry

  15. Please everyone should be careful and stop being deceived by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $50,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their fund, I contacted the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back. Direct WhatsApp contact: +1 (519) 398-1460
